Snowmobile Accidents Claims
Snowmobile Accident Lawyer in Toronto
Ontarians have always found ways to make the most of the winter and take advantage of our province’s exciting and diverse landscape. And one of the most popular ways to experience our winter wonderland is on a snowmobile. Unfortunately, snowmobiling’s massive popularity in Ontario has led to a significant number of serious, even catastrophic injuries. Approximately 50 snowmobile-related deaths occur each year in Ontario and Quebec, in addition to roughly 1,200 injuries that require hospitalization.
If you’ve been injured in a serious snowmobile accident, contact us today to speak with an experienced lawyer who can help you navigate your snowmobile injury claim.
Many of the behaviours that lead to serious snowmobile accidents are the same that cause automobile accidents on Ontario’s roads or on the water. These include:
- Dangerous and aggressive driving, including speeding
- Operation in low-visibility conditions, including at night or during inclement weather
- Drug and/or alcohol impairment
When someone is injured in a serious snowmobile accident, one of the first things they should do is contact an experienced snowmobile accident lawyer. Recovering from a serious injury can take years and can incur significant expense – a snowmobile accident lawyer can help you to access financial compensation to fund that recovery.
Compensation can be sought in two ways:
Insurance: Just like automobile drivers, snowmobilers must insure their vehicles per the Motorized Snow Vehicles Act. Snowmobile insurance, like car insurance, is considered ‘no-fault,’ which means that injured snowmobilers may have access to similar benefits and protections as injured car and truck drivers.
Civil lawsuit: If another party is at fault for your injury, it may be possible for you to seek financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a snowmobile accident, reach out to a lawyer at Pollack Tsimerman to start building your case.
